RAINY DAY TEA IN THE KITCHEN

Today is Tuesday which means it is time for "Tea In The Garden".  One look out the window this morning told me that it wouldn't be a good idea today.  Rain seems to be in the forecast so I have set out a teacup for you here in the kitchen on the buffet:





I hope you don't mind being in the kitchen for a
 quick cup of tea this  morning.  As always, it seems summer is going by so fast.  Our world is in such turmoil I cup of tea will be a welcoming calm 


I am sharing my three Sadler teapots in various shapes and sizes but all with rosebuds:



I am in a Facebook Group called Afternoon Tea Across America. There are also many Canadians in the group.   As part of the group there are occasional optional tea card exchanges and that is how I received this darling Queenly Egg Cover below.  If you are interested in this group you can find it on Facebook and join.



Today we have a blog party where you can visit others for "Tea In The Garden" so I hope you will do that and if you are a tea blogger please link a post below - even an older one or a new one!  It just needs to be about tea and please include a link here to me as well.  Next week I hope to be back out in the garden.  I am also participating in these parties:

Hi Bernideen,
I was just on my way out the door when I decided to check and you had your tea on here. I love your pretty Sadler teapots! The little rosebuds are so sweet. I haven't been able to do an outdoor tea yet. Perhaps one of these days I'll get it done. Love your pink buffet! Thanks for sharing and joining me for tea. Have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Dear Sandi,
we had several storms and heavy rain here. But now the weather cleared up and I have made my post in the garden. I hope you like a rest with book and ice cream. Thank you for your lovely tea time and for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

How sweet and cozy this is! A rainy day can be very nice every once in a while. Tea is becoming a necessity in this current events climate...

Hi Bernideen! I am sorry you weren't able to go out into that awesome and lovely garden of yours today...but sometimes a free watering for a garden is always nice. : - )

Your rosebud china is so pretty - and I absolutely adore that tin box in the background. It's gorgeous.

Thank you for hosting.

Tea inside is fine, it's where mine has been the last couple of days. Every time I start something outside it pours - including when I picked blueberries!
I like your Saddler teapots especially for the size - perfect for one, or to share. :-)

Your tea pots are so sweet and I love your buffet. A casual cuppa tea in the kitchen sounds delightful and cozy, especially calming. The egg cozy is new to me.

Those teapots are really pretty--I really like the thick gold with the delicate little roses. Thanks for sharing about the facebook group and for hosting :)

I believe I would enjoy tea with you anywhere, Bernideen, whether in the garden or in the kitchen!
